What’s holding back drone use in environmental management?

James Cook University researchers are seeking conservation and environmental professionals to share their views on the use of drones in their organisations.

The study aims to:

  • Identify barriers to using drones in conservation and environmental management;
  • Explore whether barriers to drones are universal or unique to different organisations; and
  • Gather information on how these barriers might be overcome

The survey is online and will only take 15 minutes to complete.

Survey respondents must be 18 years of age or older and work in environmental management or conservation for local government.

Those who work in state government environmental management departments (eg, parks and recreation) or for environmental-related community groups or NGOs can also complete the survey

The results will be published in a peer-reviewed journal in mid to late next year, with a copy of the pre-publication results made available to councils on request.

Queries about the survey, which will be open until mid-February 2022, can be directed to Sophie Walker: Sophie.walker1@my.jcu.edu.au
